The Original Trilogy / In what thing could IG88 spend his money?
« on: September 10, 2008, 12:13 PM »
Star Wars Universe has all kind of bounty hunters, inclusive droids. Ig88 are a family of droids built for assassination, the most famous is ig88 B (The droid from esb). Ever I have wondered what use of money could make a droid? Well, Ig 88 has a space ship, he spends money in weapons, grenades, batteries, he could listen to music and buy cds or so on. But he canīt spend money on food and drinks, he is a machine.

If a droid is an art collector he could buy statues, vases, maquettes, books, holocrons, etc.

But why these droids need money? What is the ultimate use of monet for them?

Hey Hasbro! / Hasbro should offer build a trooper bonus action figures
« on: September 8, 2008, 05:03 PM »
Today we are buying the build a droid bonus parts with TLC action figures, it i :)s great. But in the near future Hasbro could make a campaing of building your bonus trooper.

For example black stormies, white stormies with removable helmet, imperial gunners, atst drivers,
rebel fleet troopers, hoth troopers or endor troopers.

Or perhaps they could launch a "Build a pilot campaing", the figures could be known pilots or generic pilots like awing, b wing, x wing, tie pilots, etc.

If you agree with this idea, please propose which trooper you would want to build in such a promotion for the future. :)

I think both imperials and rebel commanders need an update. We saw one at sdcc 2008, with Lt. Renz, but his body is a repaint from Jerjeroodīs body. We need soldiers and commanders with id and without id.

I think the tendency of Hasbro line is to release a commander with his full name, because anonymate is avoided due to the public knowledge of these oficersīnames by fans worldwide.

Perhaps in the future, Hasbro could include parts of a new FX-7 medical droid, a 2-1B with his computer chair, C3po and R2D2, some droids from Jabba Palace, etc. 8)

This promotion encourages buying action figures with proper blisters.

We are now buying TLC action figures. In some cases, the bubbles hold very tight the action figures, so it is difficult to return them to their original boxes. The boxes are great, well decorated. But I remember the potf2 bubbles, they hold action figures loose and let us store them quickly in their original blisters.

Perhaps Hasbro could improve the bubbles, making them a bit more loose. Mainly the limbs of toys are hold very tight, and more when they hold some weapon.

Come on, share your opinions about TLC bubbles.

Whatīs the lowest and the highest price you have found for a TLC BMF?

I think 125$ is reasonabel, but 200$ is excessive

Good luck for all and beware of speculators.

I piked Luke Skywalker from TLC, sandstorm deleted scene Rotj

Great sculpt, the texture of Luke black suit is amazing. Show details of a virtual tailor work.

This is the path for a DS2 Luke from the Jedi duel.

Why only 3 action figures and a scurrier? it is good, but needs more sandtroopers

The Original Trilogy / Re: Bossk and BoShek outfits from Doctor Who

Nice research, indeed those were the star wars outfits for Bossk and Bo shek, but the sw characters built a durable role in fiction.

I agree with Pete_Fett, the ice bases from saga hoth luke and ultra wampa were necesary in this pack.

It happens every time when Hasbro repacks..... they diminish accesories. The decorated box inside serves as a diorama, but if they want to satisfy collectors' need for accuracy they must have included the ice bases of Luke and Wampa.

How about a new Rebel transpot?

with a movable gun on top, wide cockpit for 4 action figures, longer than BMF, with some accesories like the vintage one, like gas mask, bags, weapons.

In the narrative elements of a tragedy is necesary to show the evolution of the power of the antagonists
In ep I, Palpatine managed to separate both Sidious and the senator/chancellor roles, because he is a master of deceive (This is one of his first shown skills, heīs strong in the dark side but heīs also extremely cuning) While episodes or acts of tragedy advance both heroes and villians evolve in skills, but there is a diference, heroes evolve in virtue (in the greek sense of areté) while villians evolve in evilness and vice.

In ep II, Palpatine shows more confidence in his power than before, because he is at the head of the Republic. At the end of Aotc (I didnīt remember the lines) Yoda and Mace conclude they canīt trust in Palpy and must keep an eye on his behavior. He accomplished his plans: make the separatist clash with the Republic in a conflict that will weaken both and made him the only option to solve the crisis.
Jedis were fighting in this conflict because they care about people and wanted to safe the most lives.

The two previous episode brought the conditions for the rise of the empire in rots, when Palpatine controls the army to overcome the Jedi with order 66. At this point  all Jedi were distrutful with Palpy but only a hero in tragedy could discover the hidden truth, Anakin, because he was growing in Power and virtue, he discovered Palpatine was the Sith Lord, because he was close to him, and he had an advantage in force sensitivity among the Jedi group.
